The Situation Fires Back at Dad for Writing Tell-All


After Mike Sorrentino's dad released a series of accusatory videos, the 'Jersey Shore' star responds.

Looks like he's got a situation on his hands.

Jersey Shore's resident catchphrase artist, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, released a statement Wednesday after a series of videos of his father, Frank, were posted on TMZ this week.

The MTV reality star's dad accused him of abandoning his family after achieving notoriety and being fired from pre-fame jobs for inappropriate sexual conduct, among other things.

"Mike is extremely saddened by his estranged father's actions and the Sorrentino family, Marc, Frank Jr., Melissa and their mother Linda, remain united with Mike under these hurtful circumstances," The Situation said in a statement. He added that they are "seeking the advice of legal counsel." 

Looks like the battle is just beginning: People reports that The Situation's dad is writing that he is selling the rights to a book about his famous son.

"I'm calling Mike on his s--t," Frank writes. "I covered for Mike his entire life, and when I needed his help, he left me hanging."
